There's Nothing Like a Freshly Laundered Quilt

Back in 2011, I lost my significant other, Scott, to a rare, aggressive form of cancer. While he was sick, my coworkers at McCall's Quilting made me this lovely quilt, which has brought me much comfort ever since. Today was the day I laundered it for the first time. Gently, with a minimum of soap, followed by a short time in a low-heat dryer. And believe it or not, the quilt is even better than ever. Take a look at this gorgeous texture. I'm off to snuggle...happy Friday night, everybody!
